Copo De Nieve Group's story

The Copo de Nieve Association has been a part of the Kiva family, Pro-Mujer, for approximately three years. The members meet in the Villa Exaltación centre which is located in the town of El Alto. Currently there are sixteen active members—they have shown themselves to be a well-organised group with regard to their loan repayments.
At the moment the president of the group is Marina Catillo.

The members have a variety of businesses, for example selling vegetables such as potatoes, oca, chuño (freeze-dried potato), and tunta (dried potato). Other members prepare and sell food, clothing, vegetables, groceries, etc. The Copo de Nieve Association would like to buy more merchandise and/or ingredients so they can increase their profits in order to have financial stability.

In this group: Marina, Manuela, Teodora, Dorotea, Cristina, Julia*, Teodocia, Dina, Rosa, Carmen Luz, Teresa, Norah Graciela*, Dionicia, Jaime, Margui, Elizabeth
